ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/28/2015 - LEMOORE, CA
WHILE DRIVING THE CAR IT LOSES ELECTRICAL POWER AND THE VEHICLE STALLS, WHICH CAUSES IT TO LOSE LIGHTS, GAUGES, STEERING, ETC. THE CAR WILL NOT RESTART IMMEDIATELY AFTER STALLING OUT, SOMETIMES UP TO AN HOUR. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION AND HAS HAPPENED OVER 8 TIMES NOW. THE LOCAL HYUNDAI DEALER SAID IT MIGHT BE THE IP JUNCTION BOX OR IT MIGHT BE A LOSE GROUNDING WIRE AND THEY WILL NOT GIVE US A DEFINITE ANSWER FOR A FIX. THE CAR CONTINUES TO LOSE ELECTRICAL AND STALL AND IS NOW UNABLE TO BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY DUE TO THE FACT OF THE MILEAGE IS AT 60,100. I SEE THIS AS A MANUFACTURING FAULT WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND HYUNDAI SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THIS MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AT NO COST TO THE CONSUMER.
